NURIC - Capacity Building in Nursing Informatics Competencies to Foster the Digital Transformation of Healthcare
The project is funded by the Erasmus+ Program and is rewarded with a total grant of almost 400,000 euros. It will involve market actors, develop a curriculum adapted to the local needs, and pilot and evaluate shorter nano-courses and more intensive certificate courses (up to 20 ECTS) in nursing informatics. At least ten nano-courses and at least one certificate course for at least 15 participants will be implemented in each country. A web-based repository of OER (open educational resources) learning materials will be available and hosted also after the end of the project. In Kosovo, the Chamber of Nurses expects to recognize the courses. In Israel, accreditation by the Ministry of Health will be sought.
All academic partners have long years of experience in participating in or leading European projects and in research and education in nursing informatics. Thus, the partners in Austria and Italy have the expertise to support the VET providers in Kosovo and Israel in designing a nursing informatics course that is strongly rooted in international recommendation of nursing informatics education, but also take local needs into account. All partners in all countries have experience in training professional nurses which guarantees that the instructional (blended-learning and online) design will be successful.
On behalf of Holon Institute of Technology, the project is led by the team of Medical Digital Technologies Department with Dr. Rafael Barkan, Dr. Hadas Lewy, Dr. Nissim Harel and Dr. Tomas Karpati.
